1 Who, do you reckon, has done the most to put Argentinian football on the map? Superstar Diego Maradona? Hotshot Lionel Messi? Or Gorbals-born teacher Alexander Watson Hutton?

3 He loved sport and believed it was a crucial part of education. When he founded his own school, the Buenos Aires English High School (BAEHS), he taught his pupils how to play football as part of the curriculum. His school team enjoyed great success, winning 22 titles and creating many stars of the national team (including Watson Hutton’s son Arnoldo, a prolific scorer from the age of 15.)

4 In 1891, Watson Hutton and Alex Lamont established the Association Argentine Football League, the first football league outside of the British Isles.

5 In 1911, Alexander retired and the club was disbanded. It is still the fifth most decorated Argentine club in the country’s history. He died in 1936, just as passion for football in Argentina was reaching heady heights. The AFA library is named in his honour and Watson Hutton is buried in the British Cemetery in Chacarita, Buenos Aires. Back home in the Gorbals, a Laurieston housing development marked his contribution to world sporting history by naming a house type after him. The Hutton is one of 19 house types recognising notable Gorbals legends, including TV host Lorraine Kelly and former Manchester United star Paddy Crerand.
